Blinkit iPod safety light debuts

imageIntuitive Devices has introduced the Blinkit safety flasher/flashlight system for iPods. The $30 device, which is compatible with all dockable iPods, is designed for personal safety when using your iPod after dark. “The Blinkit user becomes easily visible from over a hundred yards away,” says the company. “An adjustable mirror system lets users direct light forward or to both sides. Five interchangeable tinted lens caps let users change the color of light emitted. Whether for safety or just fun, Blinkit helps provide personal visibility at night. In addition, Blinkit also flashes along with your iPod, providing a light show synchronized to the beat of your music.”

I really does seem silly to me. A standalone flashlight would be much better and there are better solutions for light shows.

this product says “HEY LOOK AT ME I"VE HAVE MONEY!!!!! ROB ME FOR ALL I"M WORTH!!!!!”

if you think a safety light says rob me for all i’m worth maybe you should stay home…with or without a light your iPod and your dangling earbuds make you a “target”...

Bought one of the first 210 Blinkits at MacWorld and I love it. Found my Bluetooth earpiece between the seats of my Expedition and kept the blue light blinking in Puerto Vallarta so my friends could find me and get me back to the hotel. Lite one up and enjoy!

Reader advisory: This news story, a related review, and a competing product’s review received hyping comments from a viral marketer affiliated with Intuitive Designs. iLounge strongly discourages its readers from doing business with companies that engage in such practices.

i had a real problem with this device…i was driving and listening to my ipod through my radio and i saw that the blinkit light was attached ....mind you it was about 10 30 at night ....i said hey lets see what this thing looks like happened to have the blue cover on it ... and as i played tupacs ” do for love ”  the people in front of me pulled over as if i was a policeman
and in less than 5 minutes i myself was pulled over by a policeman asking for my stolen police strobe ....i said umm its my ipod light ...and he said that is the most asinine object he had ever seen and his dept will do what they can to ban them sorry blinkit ....maybe i got you guys in trouble…..they should put a disclaimer saying dont use in a vehicle at night with red or blue shields
